While in town on a week-long business trip, I ate my last meal of the week here. Man I wish I would have eaten here sooner. The BBQ was good, but the fried extras they have are the best I've had. The deep fried pickles were big chunks of kosher pickles battered and fried crispy. The mushrooms were big fresh... More

Everything at Freckles is handmade: the BBQ, the sauces, the house-ground beef in the burgers, etc. September is Italian month at Freckles and the pasta is house-made. It's good food, and the staff is friendly and helpful.

Hamburgers, pizza, BBQ . Most recently I had ribs. Great value and great ribs. I had cole slaw and Fries. You can order it on a regular plate to go next door to the taproom and eat and have local beer.

We shared an order of mushrooms and a burger topped with pulled pork and bacon. I eat it again for breakfast if they were open!

Real BBQ with unique and delicious housemade sauces. Both the ribs and the brisket that we had were obviously smoked and then the sauces, different for each, were added. The coleslaw absolutely fresh and not overdressed. The onion rings crispy and delectable. Highly recommend.

Stumbled on this place while on a motorcycle ride with friends and weren't disappointed. Super good french fries! Since we all ordered the fish and chips we cannot comment on other menu items. Our server was so pleasant and brought us tastes of the beer from the brewery next door.

Had a plate of beef and it was great. Excellent beer from the brewpub next door helped me hydrate after a long day on the motorcycle.
